Your photos are wonderful, Hilke! I fell in love with the Burrowing Owls.

I’d love to use a few of your pictures for my presentation: some vultures, two Red-shouldered Hawks, two Broad-winged Hawks, and the juvenile Red-tailed. They will be such great additions and will help show class participants – many of whom are beginners – some of the beauty and majesty of Vermont’s raptors.

Thanks so much!
